PIQ is opening a new store in SoHo and Ron English is helping them celebrate. America's premier pop iconoclast will be in-store for a signing from 5-6 pm Thursday 7/26 at PIQ Soho 420 Broadway between Howard and Canal. Ron will also be there to unveil his Fat Tony window. The PIQ SoHo window will be transformed into a Cereal Killers box with a super-sized Fat Tony sculpture. The first 75 people will get a limited edition 2.75" x 1.75" Fat Tony box pin.
The PIQ SoHo grand opening continues Saturday 7/28 with live appearances by Rilakkuma and Smiski, and free ltd buttons by resident artists Tara McPherson and Jellykoe. Customers can take a spin of the PIQ wheel of luck for a chance to win prizes for Kid Robot, Funko, Bored Inc, Dreams, and more!
About Ron English
One of the most prolific and recognizable artists alive today, Ron English has bombed the global landscape with unforgettable images, on the street, in museums, in movies, books and television. English coined the term POPaganda to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superhero mythology to totems of art history. His vast arsenal of original characters blend stunning visuals with the bitingly humorous undertones making him America’s Premier Pop Iconoclast.
